Zucchini; It’s good to be green.

You’ve heard it all, seen it all, eaten it all. Everything zucchini.

Year after year folks look for new ways to “dispose” of this easy to grow, can’t give away veg. They cook with them, bake with them and make Harry Potter Puppet Pals with them.

But just in case you’ve thrown away your list, I’ll post you a few tried & true to get you in the mood and several out-of-the-box to get your creative juices flowing.

Each summer I’m reminded just how much one vegetable can be both loved and hated.

Let’s love it for a little bit longer …

PS If you’re searching for seeds (from arugula to zucchini and everything in between), I’m recommending a company that not only has a worthy mission creed but a wonderful moral code. Give The Mauro Seed Company a looksee.

Their motto? Grow One, Give One. I’m impressed. Maybe you will be too.

Now don’t forget to head on over to the main post (here) to see what I’m bletherin’ on about this week. And check out what we’re talkin’ bout down at the pub (here) too!
